It is not the gradual depravity of the mistd
whch ofteneft prove the ruiin of the fi., hlut
the want ofdifiretion. Few men would take th.
trouble to effect fuch a gradu al chance of the
virtuous mind as renure them fibfc vient to their
deficn', buit many will endeavour to betray them
into fioch fituiationv as arc the effect. of indifere-
tion, and which 'he helpleffenet of the fex ren.-
dert truly diftrelfing. And how many amiable
and accomplifhed women, hy one lapfr ofthm fort,
ha.ive been brought to embrace x life of infamy,
and to ctierate that beauty and thofc charms,

which in hanpier das hannrmramented a happier
mind. I knev T.cillt, prt- ent. mo'e, and
rrrferd (for fuch the precep' and examp'e of nit
affedtiunate mother firmedl her)s hbt when fhe
came to Londonn. and was told that enqtctrv rn-
tered the lift f female accomplishments, the affrm
ed a very different appra ance. Th'-f, however.
who were her advifers, fion had caife to rerpnt
the docility of their pupil,for th; innocent ai ty
expnfed he- to drivn and eisninr. and cre Ihe
wan aware of hr fit nlion, fmnk her into difelrften
with the world, h'rfelf and virtue. So quick is
'he trinftinn from one etreme to another, and
fich is the fale of her who would celah'ith a mr-
dium hetwern fecretion and fo'lv, and to. in-
raatintflv wiiier to thun the failirg -' that learl

the exertion ofthit firiehtlinef in the fair f-a, as
I am convinced that the mo rate tinf of thofe
accielrntal onaments wi'l as much improve, as
there x-cfT will i h.afe their charenlr.
Eagtr a. moft women arc to drrft themselves in
finrry, are twe t ittrihnte thiq entirely to a love
,if fuch fupi rifuity ? I think the aflertion wotilil
he me;n and iIoriif. Rut neereity often taker
the ol choice. If we confiler how few mer
'herre are who place their affPelio'l on any thing
hbt lie featlircs or the fortune nfa u ife, we are

the anrreitb' fir it. Fven truth and fenfe
prevail moft when clothed in elegant lanonagte i
though by the Iye, the moft e'rgant language is
very where the noft fmp'e. Simplicity and Tul-
garily are wrll ly diffrcnt.
Whether thercis more happiness tohe e(lpe6e
from a m of fcnfe and unlerltanding. or from
one or an enpty and frivilomu mind. but accom-
plilh%- onul le, fle can heft tell who has learned
to iflir.illnth betwixt that tranitory merit which
plearfC the rye, and that more valuable worth
enfireca permanency and delight.
With moft couple., before marriage, all i, rap-
ture anld delight, every mile Is heaven, and every
frown hell; racks, goeldfee', tortures, and an-
gels, are familiar phrafes to express the pleafure
of hope, or the trllcinnefs of flight but all thua
language foon en'o in the fltnce of faticty. or
perhaps the rouah utterance of contempt. The
angel becomvec a woman; the mellifnuent language
of her lips becomes Billingf.ate, and all her fond.

is fooe'ry and childllhntfs.
If we consider how much the company of the
ladies fcrvea to promote good manners, we can.
not lnrln wondering that men thnuld to foon tire
of it. If the refpef they command does not en-
tirely eradicate indelicate thoughts, it will at Iealt
prferve public decency, and the fear of offending
them will ha a curb to public licentloufnef,.
As nature has appointed a remarkable difference
of constitution of body between the fIcxe, It Is
rcafonable to fuppofe, that there are crrtalm occu-
pations more peculiarly appropriated to the one
than the other. In fadl, each (C has fome virtue.
